Subject[PATCH 4.9 42/61] parisc: Fix kernel panic in mem_init()
Date
From: Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>

commit bf71bc16e02162388808949b179d59d0b571b965 upstream.

The Debian kernel v5.6 triggers this kernel panic:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Bad Address (null pointer deref?)
Bad Address (null pointer deref?): Code=26 (Data memory access rights trap) at addr 0000000000000000
CPU: 0 PID: 0 Comm: swapper Not tainted 5.6.0-2-parisc64 #1 Debian 5.6.14-1
IAOQ[0]: mem_init+0xb0/0x150
IAOQ[1]: mem_init+0xb4/0x150
RP(r2): start_kernel+0x6c8/0x1190
Backtrace:
[<0000000040101ab4>] start_kernel+0x6c8/0x1190
[<0000000040108574>] start_parisc+0x158/0x1b8

on a HP-PARISC rp3440 machine with this memory layout:
Memory Ranges:
0) Start 0x0000000000000000 End 0x000000003fffffff Size 1024 MB
1) Start 0x0000004040000000 End 0x00000040ffdfffff Size 3070 MB

Fix the crash by avoiding virt_to_page() and similar functions in
mem_init() until the memory zones have been fully set up.
